A Surprise! from far away



I received a nice package in the mail today, all the way from Australia, it's the prize I won from Lil' Kim's contest, the book she illustrated and shared the process on her blog earlier this year. How beautiful!

I now understand the cover illustration, a secret she has kept all along! But don't think I will reveal it!!!

She also included a very cute card (who can resist a cycling monkey?) Thank you Kim!!!

IF-memories



Memories are strongly influenced by our perception of them, often leaving us with a beautified image distorted by nostalgia.

Nos souvenirs sont affectés par notre perception de ceux-ci, nous laissant souvent une image idéalisée, teintée par la nostalgie.

IF-Canned



OK, "canned in a shrinking room", I know it's a stretch but I couldn't wait to post this one. It's an image to accompany a text by my long-time friend Claudine, who writes beautiful, poetic, dark tales and has the courtesy to ask what I would like to draw to go along with the text! It doesn't get any better than this!
